Chapter 175: More Than Words

Sultry pop & ballads

A sexy set that is very different from the sweet funk and R&B of chapter 155; this one is all furtive glances and brushed fingers, hushed come-ons and bedroom eyes, red wine and lowered shades. Elvis Costello ebbs and flows between seduction and menace; Shirley Manson of Garbage is 100% menace, even as she promises “I would die for you.” Madonna completed the transformation from Material Girl to full-on sexpot with “Justify My Love.” Closing out is one of the great unrequited love songs, Sinead O’Connor singing Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
